New bodyguard part 1

I hope everypup and kitty had a lovely easter yesterday. We didn't do much in my house - mum and dad went to lunch at grandma's but they didn't bring any snacks home for me so I'm pretending it never happened.

This is Alex. He is the alligator I won in Steve, Kat and Wilbur's Day of Blogs last year.
He has spent the last eight months watching over my purple Huffle bed and doing a very good job so I am considering him for the job of my bodyguard. Do you think he has what it takes?

I think he looks pretty scary close up. Something about those beady eyes. Alex is medium sized, a little bit smaller than I am. He runs close to the ground.
For the next few days I will be featuring potential candidates for this position. There will be a poll on my blog on Thursday so please make sure you come back and vote.

He might be a good body guard. We'll have to see who the other candidates are before we decide. he looks like he would be comfy to cuddle against.

I have to say I am not so sure. I can't see his teeth. He may be a good protector of your lair, but in a scuffle with some fierce combatants, I am not so sure who would be protecting who, for you have mighty incisors.

Let's see # 2.

Lorenza said...

He looks like a good bodyguard candidate. But lets see the others before taking a decision, ok?

I don't know, Huffle. He seems to be steady and competent, but I think I need to see the other candidates.

See ya!

Did you fire Mr Mouse? I'd like to see all my options first.

C said...

Alex is interesting! He looks strong! With kind of funny eyes!

Princess Eva and Brice said...

I think he may be all bark (or whatever sound gators make) and no bite.

Stella said...

Huffle, does he have a squeaker? That would be the only way I could accept him as a bodyguard. Without a squeaker how would he let you know something is wrong???

Kisses,

He is cute ... maybe he is too cute for a bodyguard as he wudn't scare the baddies away!

Forever Foster said...

Alex looks like he has great bodyguard potential. Is your mousie just not working out?

pughy said...

I like him a lot, but not scary. He is just cuddly.

The Island Cats said...

We kinda like Alex....but is he tough enough for the job???

The Army of Four said...

He's got a lot of potential, Huffs! It's the eyes.... yeah... he's got potential!

Cyber-sibes said...

Hmm, usually the gators we've seen have lots of toofies sticking out of their mouths. Is he hiding his? We think your body guard would need toofies or claws to defend woo.

hey Huffle Mawson,

Happy Easter to you! (I know, a day late...sorry!) I like Mr. Alligator and he has a cool look about him. But be careful - when alligators open their jaws they can fit an entire Huffle Mawson in their mouths! So in that sense he would be a great bodyguard!

Can't wait to see the other candidates!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Well, he'll ly be better than Mr. Mouse. Heck, Alex could be dead and stuffed and he'd be better than Mr. Mouse. We will objectively evaluate all candidates for the position.
- TBH

Cliff and Olivia said...

That's a pretty cool 'gator!

GoldenSamantha said...

Oz here: kind of scary, but his eyes remind me of Mr. Stick - (A Life with Dogs blog thing) - Alligator could be your man compared to the other two!
Whisker tips,
Ozzie

The OP Pack said...

If we could see his big white teeth, we might think he was scarier looking. We want to see what other candidates you have to offer.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hmmm, word verification is "aussi".

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Well, since I have had personal experience with Alex, I think he could be a good candidate. Since he's close to the ground, he can watch out for bugs for you. And those beady eyes probably send out lasers to dismantle flashy beasts.

Wilbur

The Crew said...

Hmmmm, I don't know about Alex for this position, Huffle. To be your bodyguard, shouldn't he be BIGGER than you?
